High School Equivalency/GED

High School Equivalency/GED

High School Equivalency (HSE) classes get you career and college ready. These free, pre-college classes help people who don’t have a high school diploma earn a high school equivalency certificate (GED®). Passing the HSE exam such as the GED can help you get a new job, promotion or even qualify for other forms of job training and post-secondary education assistance. 

We believe everyone has the right to succeed and obtain an education. The Right to Succeed program at Kish assists young adults between the ages of 16 to 21 obtain a high school equivalency certificate and get their lives moving forward. Instruction in math, science, social studies and language arts are all part of the class. Contact us for more information on the Right To Succeed program. 

Registration takes place before the start of each semester at Kishwaukee College and various community sites. Please plan at least 3 hours for registration, orientation, and assessment. View the Registration Schedule to find a convenient date and time to get registered and the GED/HSE Class Schedule to determine dates, times and locations for classes.  Please view the Registration and Orientation page to get a head start on your registration process.
